Robert Polidori: Synchrony and Diachrony

Photographs of the J. P. Getty Museum 1997

Text by David Dorenbaum, Amanda Maddox, Robert Polidori.

Robert Polidori: Synchrony and Diachrony

This book presents 35 photos of the Getty Center taken shortly before the 1997 opening of its new multipurpose complex designed by Richard Maier. Published to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the center, the book reveals behind-the-scenes views of the building as objects from J. Paul Getty’s painting, sculpture and decorative arts collections were being installed inside it.

In September 1997 the New Yorker commissioned Robert Polidori (born 1951) to photograph Maier’s building. Within 48 hours he had made images of its exterior but was dissatisfied. Polidori wanted to document the museum’s interior, and proceeded to photograph the rooms in which artworks were either freshly installed or still being so. The resulting photos show the museum in the process of taking shape, expose the mechanics of curatorship.
